For this month, the painting Evolution 1 is in the picture.

It’s an oilpainting, 120 x 150 cm. Later more information.

 

Evolutie 1

Recently I moved to a new studio. And instead of traveling 40 minutes, it only takes me 10 minutes now to get to my studio. Saves me a lot of time.

Therefore: OPEN HOUSE!

When: sunday 27th of september, from 12 -18 hrs

Where: Dovenetel 21, Apeldoorn, the Netherlands.

I was not present at the time, but I think these drawings where made approximately one hour after Charles Darwin published his book “On the origin of species”, in 1859.

By the way, these drawings are for sale. If you do buy them, I will donate the money to charity:  “SAVE THE DINOSAUR”.

Promise.

This little also at the exhibition in Harlingen (start: 17th of april).

Well, my job as a teacher is, not only to challenge my students, but also to broaden their horizon. To force them to think out of the box.

I show them the picture made by Gerhard Richter: “Betty”. At first glance, they think it is a picture, a “photo”. And are surprised when I tell them, it is an oilpainting. “Wow, how realistic, great artist, this guy knows how to do the job”.

Then I show them the other, abstract paintings of Richter. Without telling them that these paintings are made by the same artist. They are confused. They don’t have the experience in “seeing”, to judge these paintings, to “come to a verdict”.

And of course, to enlarge their confusion, I finally tell them, it’s the same artist.

Leonardo Da Vinci: “There are three classes of people: Those who see, Those who see when they are shown, Those who do not see.
